There’s a constitutional fallback for a state that is invaded; it can wage war on its own. War has considerably fewer niceties than civil law as we know it. While this might mean tanks to some, I’d be happy if Arizona set up a huge trebuchet on the border facing south, and launched Mexican interlopers back into Mexico. (OK, give them a parachute so the landing isn’t quite so rough. We don’t want to part with all humaneness, after all.)

What Kennedy basically said the Federal government can decide on its own if they want to repel an invasion or not.

The Constitution expressly gives the Federal government no choice in the matter: that's their job and they have to do it.

Kennedy (and Roberts for god's sake) just gave a roadmap to any country that would like to invade and take over the United States: simply have your nationals walk in and install themselves as the citizenry, and take over. You're not allowed to fight back, especially if they aren't white people.

So indeed the states have an emergency right to repel an invasion. The Federal "government" has shown not just a disinterest in complying with it's Constitutionally mandated job, but an outright hostility to it.

Mexico is intentionally trying to control the U.S. Southwest in practicality if not in name. Brewer should simply mobilize the Arizona National Guard on a war footing and declare any incursions into the State as being something that will be repulsed militarily.

Let Kennedy write an opinion about that. And then stuff it where the sun don't shine.

Yeah, tanks, well, I'd like to get a bunch of Sherman Jumbos (my favorite tank) and Easy 8's ready for the rumble. Well, OK, I'm a World of Tanks junky as a side note. B-) I think what Arizona should do is when they arrest an illegal, just put them in one of Sheriff Joe's camps and hold them there. I told my cousin, "we should put them to work in the plane Boneyard and make them refurbish DC-4's, 707's, DC-8's and the like and Arizona can use the planes to fly them back." Come to think of it, we'd have a labor pool to refurbish the Sherman tanks. B-)

BTW, like the Trebuchet idea too.

Arizona citizen could vote to have ALL citizens 'show their papers'. Do it for a year. For traffic stops and random road blocks.

That way illegals could be caught and no one's 'civil rights' would be violated as everyone is treated the same...

Scoutmaster - do you think this would work?
